  1. Alagoas Cowboys (Martin Brodin Remix) by Rodion


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is a pretty quirky electro disco track from Rodion by way of Gomma records in Germany. Alagoas Cowboys is from the Rodion For Ever Single and For Ever Remixes Single and the remix is certainly the more fun version. The original version of Alagoas Cowboys is more stripped down version which still is pretty fun but I first discovered this cut by listening to the Martin Brodin Remix. I love the whistling in the cut basically it’s mostly cool midtempo electronic disco beats with cute whistling nothing else. No vocals but all fun!

    I highly recommend Gomma Records and their releases. Everything by Munk is top notch and one of my favorite acts to follow for new releases.

  2. Versions Of Spacer Woman by Charlie


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Spacer Woman by Charlie is one of my all time favorite Italo Disco tracks. I remember hearing in the early 80s but it came and went as I was only 13 when it was released. But later about 8 years ago is when I rediscovered again. Actually in 2004 it was on a compilation called I-Robots: Italo Electro Disco Underground Classics that I rediscovered this track and since then I haven’t stopped listening to it. Boy does this track still sounds fresh today or what? Luckily too that there have been some remixes and remakes by Sally Shapiro and I-Robots that sound just as fresh as the original 1983 version of Spacer Woman by Charlie. Italo Disco was that genre that came out in the early 80s to sound fresh and underground to become cheesy and overplayed/overproduced by the 80s came to a close. Luckily there are cool cuts like Spacer Woman to revisit that spacey 80s sound.

    I-Robot’s version of Spacer Woman has been beefed up and been given the production treatments of todays technologies. The woman vocals have been removed and robotic vox have taken over which actually works quite awesomely. Then the Sally Shapiro version basically is replaced by Sally’s trademark vox mostly sung version. There are 3 versions of Spacer Woman on the single from Sally Shapiro and Johan Agebjörn. The upbeat remake which is still my favorite, the more spacey – mellow – ambient version called Deeper Space Woman and the spacey disco house version called Outer Space Woman (Parts 1 & 2). On the single is also a track called Mega Man 2 which is very video game soundtrack inspired cut. Very 80s for sure.

    Enjoy all three versions below and let me know what you think of all three.

  3. Dancing On My Own (Fred Falke Radio Edit) by Robyn


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is the stand out cut from Robyn’s Body Talk, Pt. 1. I especially love the remix by Fred Falke which I have included below. Love me some Fred Falke remixes as always and this remix is the best from the huge package of remixes for Robyn’s Dancing On My Own. This song is in the vein of other classic dance tracks that still sound great today and it’s inspired by songs by Abba, Donna Summer, Sylvester, Ultravox and more. If you like your poppy dance music then this is your track. Robyn’s Body Talk series is also quite awesome and I highly recommend all the cuts from all three Body Talk ep’s. I especially love “Don’t Fucking Tell Me What to Do” from EP 1 by Robyn. Get it now, fast it’s quite awesome!

  5. CFCF Covers Big Love by Fleetwood Mac


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I first heard of CFCF with a couple of remixes he did for Sally Shapiro. Love In July and Time To Let Me Go are remixes in the style of downtempo with very disco disco flavored electronic dance that I’ve been digging so was eager to check out the CFCF album Continent where Big Love comes from. I was surprised to hear Big Love as it’s my favorite cut from Continent. And to my surprise after listening to it several times that I kept thinking it was a cover. And sure enough it’s a Fleetwood Mac cover from the 80s.

    Big Love was a pretty big hit for Fleetwood Mac and it’s your typical dance/pop song very much in line of the 80s sounding tracks. Nothing special now but still worth checking out to compare both the CFCF version of Big Love and the Fleetwood Mac version.I have had the CFCF version of Big Love on repeat lately and it’s certainly ended up on several of my playlists that I take with me on my iPhone and iPod. It’s one of those tracks that you can listen to in the background and as well listen to while having a little get together where you want some energy in your music and not get stuck to the chill out stuff that’s typical. Big Love by CFCF is off of his album Continent and Big Love by Fleetwood Mac is off of their Tango In The Night album from 1987. Check them out below.

  6. Bottin Remixes Sage Comme Une Image by Lio


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Well it’s not quite a remix but certainly an edit and it’s a great new discovery for me from a little known French singer from the 80s by the name of Lio. I love this track so much and I’ve been playing it over and over again as it’s got the sexy, groovy and very early 80s French disco sound that I like and hear on many new tracks these days influenced by that sound.

    This is a very tasty edit here by Bottin is one of the best new discoveries ever. If you are at all into anything neo disco, electro, synth or 80s retro dance then this track is certainly for you both the original and the edit by Bottin. There’s not much of a difference between the original extended version versus the edit but both are highly recommended on repeat. Check them both out below and enjoy!

  7. Gigi D’Agostino Covers Jacno’s Rectangle


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Rectangle is one of the fun, poppy tracks from the late 90s by Gigi D’Agostino. Off of his album Lamour Toujours which is full of those late 90s early 2000s dance cuts.  Little did I know Rectangle was a cover though until I heard the Jacno version back in 2001 or so. I had not heard of Jacno but luckily I was happy enough to discover it. It’s always cool to compare the remake that you thought was the original to the actual original version which was the case here.

    I don’t really know much about Jacno but this is one of those rare track that every electronic music enthusiast should know about. Unfortunately Jacno had a very short life. He died of cancer last year. He was only 52. Luckily we have his hits to remember him by including this one by Gigi D’Agostino.

  8. I’m So Excited (Coffee Extended Mix) by Qika


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Obscure electro dance club remake of the Pointer Sisters 80s dance-funk classic I’m So Excited. I’m not sure if I’m digging this or not. I like the beats the vocals are just not cutting it for me. I don’t know who Qika is or are but it’s a pretty big package of remixes here. What do you think?

  9. Live For Today by Cicero & Sylvia Mason-James


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    The Crying Game soundtrack was mostly known for the song The Crying Game by Boy George. It was a whole more about that album that most folks don’t know. The album was produced by the Pet Shop Boys and included other great songs which included a remake of the Shannon 80s hit Let The Music Play by Carroll Thompson and of course two awesome versions of a little known act called Cicero with their song Live For Today sung by Sylvia Mason-James. Absolutely love the vocals by Sylvia here.

    If you like Pet Shop Boys or anything synth pop from the late 80s and early 90s then you will certainly love this song by Cicero. I think they are definitely worth discovering as not much is known about Cicero. In the early 90s Cicero released an album called Future Boy but it failed to chart anywhere. Still though this song Live For Today produced by Pet Shop Boys is quite strong.

    The Orchestral version is the more synthed up version whereas the Gospel version is more laidback and sort of trip-hoppy. Check them out below.

  10. Black And White Town by Doves Samples (Love Is Like A) Heatwave


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    This is one of those rare Brit rock tracks that I really dig. It samples one of my favorite recordings of all time (Love Is Like A) Heatwave by Martha Reeves & The Vandellas. That song goes down as one of my all time top 25 tracks and Black And White Town does an awesome job of sampling the part of Heatwave best. I’m not much a fan of Doves but after I heard of this I was sure enough checking out more from the band. Enjoy both Doves and Martha & The Vandellas tracks below.

  11. Hablando (Dub Mix) by Vandalism & Sampled by In-Grid


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    I first heard of Hablando by Ramirez on Journey’s By DJ Paul Oakenfold CD way back in 1994. It’s that building dreamy progressive trance that once you hear you’ll get caught up in it’s magic euphoric sounds and not want to stop listening to it. The Paul Oakenfold mix was pretty darn good and I’d listen to the whole thing and start over again. So I loved this mix and I loved Hablando by Ramirez.

    So then we have a remake here by Vandalism. It’s quite similar but lot more clubby. Gone are the dreamy quality of the original but made quite more upbeat and more electro. Vandalism have just adapted the classic trance track to todays ears. It works for clubs and driving in cars. It’s an all classic trance cut waiting to be made and finally it’s been brought back to life.

    Le Dragueur by In-Grid

    Funny thing was I recently downloaded the new album by In-Grid. Ok I do like my pop dance music and noticed that Le Dragueur by In-Grid has a sample of the classic Ramirez track Hablando. This I absolutely love as they’ve taken a portion of the most famous part from Hablando and incorporated it into it’s own original song. Le Dragueur off of the album Passion by In-Grid. Enjoy all three!

  12. Walk The Line (Laurent Wolf Remix) by Laurent Wolf


     Powered by Max Banner Ads 

    Taking a classic country song like I Walk The Line by Johnny Cash and sampling it into a dance song is alright in my book. So when I first heard about Walk The Line by Laurent Wolf I immediately wanted to check it out. I had thoughts that it might suck or be boring but in reality it was quite cool. The sound is energetic electro with sections of the famous line ‘I Walk The Line” sung by Johnny Cash and sampled into track. It works in my book. It’s an upbeat, energetic banging electro club cut with a little bit of country thrown in. Trust me it’s not Rednex! Check it out … what do you think?

    I Walk The Line by Johnny Cash
    Walk The Line (Laurent Wolf Remix) by Laurent Wolf

    The remix CD called Johnny Cash Remixed came out several years ago with remixes of Johnny Cash songs but I thought it was weak. Nothing like Verve Remixed or anything similar to that. Somebody did this remix project on a shoestring budget and didn’t quite achieve top notch remixes for this as I first thought I was totally going to dig it but it’s just ok in my book. I Walk The Line remix from Johnny Cash Remixed is below includes Snoop Dogg of all peops!
